Hello I take it that what you have is a WW II bring back . If you have the capture papers these will ad to the value . I guess you did not check your spelling and your pistol is really a BERETTA model 1934 over one million made Pictures are the only way to get close to value but in 80% original finish the pistol about $200.00 if it has German Military marking add another 25%.

EDIT Hello I have never heard of a model 1944 or seen the word spelled like you have on your pistol PICTURES are more important then ever now look at the first 1/2 doz post on this forum one is a STICK title how to post pictures

Sounds like any of the other 500,000+ Model 1934 pistols produced. Are the slide markings:
[First line]
P. Beretta-Cal (could be 7.65 or 9 Corto)- M1934-BREVETTATA
[second line]
GARDONE VT 1944

Condition is everything. What kind of shape is it in?

Really nice examples will bring better than $400, even more if there are unusual markings, but such markings are not likely to be found on a 1944 pistol.

No offense, but I don't believe a 1944 Beretta could be classified unique or be especially valuable unless it was one of the small number made with German Military markings, or one of the few produced by the fascists outside of the actual Beretta factory.

My understanding of the Italian word "Brevettata" is that it is similar to our "Patented" marking found on a lot of U.S. manufactured products.

Brevettata is indeed the Italian patent designation. You also find the abbreviation Brevt (or Brev), which is like our using the abbreviation Pat.

If he puts up photos take a look and tell him what it might be worth in the real world market.
